    For the beam in the attachment, determine the stress at point D located 32mm below point A.

    a) 18.6 MPa

    b) -15.8 MPa

    c) 19.2 MPa

    d) 18.1 MPa

    Solution:

    First of all, I changed the position of point D as required in the problem, not as it was shown in the provided picture. This is important for determining what kind of normal ...
